Are you feeling the need to pack your bags and head somewhere exotic but don’t have the cashola to do so? Well you’re going to love The Body Shop’s new “Scents of the World” Collection, you’ll be taking whirlwind trip around the world without even leaving your seat.
The Scents Of The World collection is the first collection by The Body Shop to contain 100% organic essences and natural extracts, sourced from every corner of the globe and is made up of five scents. They’ve used 100% Community Fair Trade alcohol obtained from the eco-friendly sugar cane co-operative in Ecuador. Not only will you enjoy the scents of our exotic and exciting world, but you can feel good knowing you’re helping to protect the beauty of the world we live in.
The first fragrance in the collection dives right into the searing plains of Africa. The Madagascan Vanilla Flower fragrance finds sensuality in the warm, Madagascan breezes blending the warmth of amber with underlying frangipani and vanilla. The fragrance goes beyond being a sickly and artificial vanilla scent and instead is rich and nuanced in a way that makes it perfectly wearable for everyday.
The second fragrance celebrates the lush luxury of the rainforest with the Amazonian Wild Lily scent. With notes of iris, orchid, sweet papaya and fresh white lilies, the fragrance is genuinely reminiscent of the rainforest. Combined, the fragrance is cool, refreshing and green and if you close your eyes, you can almost hear the humid wind rustling through the trees.
There’s no time to delay, with the next fragrance sweeping you off to mysterious and ancient Japan. Let love bloom with the romantic scent of genuine Japanese cherry blossom, laid over the scents of crisp Fuji apple and soft, elegant Chinese magnolia. Together the fragrance is very pretty, and very feminine, a scent you could honestly fall in love with.
Next stop is India – in seconds you’ll be standing under a milky moon and velvety sky with the spicy and seductive scent. Notes of sandalwood, violet leave and orange blossom blend with the sultry and tempting scent of Indian jasmine.
The last destination on your whirlwind tour leads you to the Atlas Mountain Rose fragrance, landing you in the midst of a bustling Moroccan market. Just like the country, the fragrance is curious, exotic and intoxicating, blending notes of amber, musk and citrus with the Morrocan spices and fresh, blossoming rose.
The best part is the fragrances can be blended to customize your own signature scent. The Body Shop recommend:
- Altas Mountain Rose + Madagascan Vanilla Flower – for some soft, floral seduction
- Japanese Cherry Blossom + Indian Night Jasmine – for oriental romance
- Amazonian Wild Lily + Atlas Mountain Rose – for cool and aquatic freshness
